New Year’s Eve with Edward and Elizabeth

Susan  over at Between Naps on the Porch is once again hosting Tablescape Thursday.  Although I’m late, I just had to join in and share with you this New Year’s Eve table.



New Year’s Eve 1908…all week, Elizabeth has looked forward to this day.  Edward, her beau, has invited her to spend a delightful day with some of their friends ice skating at the lake.  This setting celebrates their enchanting day filled with fun and laughter.


A snowy white tablecloth layered with a silver embroidered runner is placed on the table.  Silver beaded placemats mimic the sparkle of the ice.


“Theresa” china by Ucagco has delicate pink and blue flowers with silvery gray scrolls.  Elizabeth used this china because it reminded her of the pale blue of the sky as she and Edward twirled around the lake.



Shrimp cocktails were served in these glasses.  The delicate stem reminds Elizabeth of icicles.


These crystal wine glasses decorated with pink petals are one of Elizabeth’s favorites and crystal champagne glasses will be used to toast the New Year.


Snowflake napkin rings were used on the pink napkins.


Silver candles were placed in crystal hurricanes decorated with pink and blue ribbons.


Elizabeth’s bouquet inspired the snowy roses used in the crystal bowl.  Icicles, frosty greenery, pink berries and ribbons complete the centerpiece.




As the sun begins to set on this New Year’s Eve, it’s time to light the candles.



Edward and Elizabeth hope you’ve enjoyed this table setting that celebrates their day spent skating at the lake.  They would like to leave you with one final sentiment…..




Thanks so much for visiting and please come back soon!

DG, that is just lovely! Those pink stems are so pretty. The pink with the silver all so shimmery and icy! I have some snow I can send you too.
The china is beautiful!
Happy 2011!

Dream, just love your little stories that go with your 'scapes! The pink is a nice touch combined with the icy features. Perfect for New Year's Eve! Love the lights of your tree in the background in the "candle" pic! I'm so sad to take the decorations down so am leaving them up another week!
